Specialist Training

Training courses on the specialist topics listed below are scheduled annually, or as required by a cohort of at least ten enrollees:

  • Peer Mediation
  • Sustained Dialogue
  • Restorative Dialogue
  • Family Relationships including Parent-Teen Dialogue & Mediation
  • Group Facilitation & Mediation
  • Workplace Mediation
  • Arbitration

Except for Peer Mediation, it is expected that enrollees will have completed either our Understanding and Resolving Conflict 40-Hour Course, or an approved Basic Mediation Training Program from an accredited dispute resolution center in Washington State or elsewhere in the United States.

Peer Mediation training is provided mainly for College and High School students prior to their working with fellow students to resolve disputes that arise either on campus, or in extra-curricular contexts.
